WATE 6 On Your Side Storm Team giving away free helmets to children

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – The WATE 6 On Your Side Storm Team wants to keep your family safe this summer.

East Tennesseans can meet Storm Team members at area parks to receive bicycle helmets from Academy Sports and Outdoors.

US Cycling sparked a lot of interest in cycling in East Tennessee. If your child has expressed interest in biking, you can receive a free helmet.

Helmets can help prevent seizures. According to the Epilepsy Foundation, the top cause of seizures in children is head injuries.

The Storm Team will be at Victor Ashe Park on Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and at Fountain City Park on Friday from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
